I'm taking my boyfriend to Venice in October, for a surprise 40th birthday trip.
I'd love to take him to a seafood restaurant on his birthday - what can you recommend? We're staying in Cannaregio, but don't mind walking.
I don't mind if it's traditional or modern in appearance, but after somewhere relaxed not starchy or stiff. It's a money no object situation - just this once.
I also have a rule of thumb to avoid anywhere with translated menus :)
